    I live in Ecuador and speak Spanish well. A couple of months ago I was accompanied on a trip of several hours by a friend who is a refugee from Venezuela and I got him talking about the situation there from his perspective. Among many other things, he commented that he was from a part of Venezuela where gold could be mined, and that the Maduro government is desperately strip-mining to get whatever they can, with no efforts whatsoever for environmental protection or remediation. He said that he had no way to estimate how much gold they might be producing, but the raping of the land was horrific.

    Very Interesting. It will be interesting to see if the UK hands over the gold, once Venezuela has "sobered up". Maybe at around the same time as Libya gets its gold back, perhaps?
